    so does anyone in here have one? what do you think to it ? is it really worth the extra outlay over a fwd 2.0t ? I know it has more power and quattro but you seem to pay more for the dtm over the standard car. What are the running costs like ?

    Thanks
    Steve

    I've got a Quattro, love it. I've got a 2l TFSI S-line, I'd love the DTM for the little bit more power and the more agressive look, but at the end of the day i can get mine chipped.

    how thirsty are they ?

    i'm going to look into buying the kit seperatly, the DTM holds its value quite well compared to the sline tfsi, the only thing i would miss is the recaros in the DTM edition oh and sprint blue paint !

    not to bad to be honest, i get 425 - 550 miles per tank depending on my driving style and journeys from a brimmed tank. I get nearly 100 miles out of the tank before the needle moves.

    425 is fine, is the quattro tank smaller or is it still 70 litres ? i don't mind worse fuel economy but I do hate being in the petrol station every 3 days !

    stop it ... i hate silver cars .... although i've been trawling the net and the dtm really suits the silver it shows all the vents in the bumper off much better. Although they look stunning in sprint blue.

    It's the closest i can get to an RS4 in terms of looks!! The Recaro's are very comfortable, i must say. Like was said earlier, they do appear to hold their value better which will be handy, as i'll be paying for it for a while yet!!!
